“Primavera” is in the air and three new bands will be joining the main programme in the Parc del Fòrum: Future Islands and from Dublin, Girl Band, who will both play on Thursday 29th May and the British artists FKA Twigs, who will play on Friday 30th.
After being on the labels Upset The Rhythm and Thrill Jockey, the band signed to the influential British label 4AD at the beginning of this year and will release their fourth album soon. A record that is opportunely called “Singles” on which they express the poppier side of their sound, that is full of familiar choruses and home synthesisers.
Girl Band are from Dublin and after only a couple of EPs and their single “Lawman” they have created a bit of a buzz. While they are preparing their debut album their concerts sell out wherever they go thanks to a sound that takes a little from minimalism and from krautrock repetition and a little from electronic music.
FKA Twigs is a young English dancer and producer who self edited her first tracks with videos of them all on Youtube, this caught the eye of the Young Turks label that release her on their label in 2013
